Place du Maréchal de Lattre de
Tassigny - 75775 PARIS Cedex 16
I am a tenure researcher at CNRS based at Paris Dauphine University- Leda.
My research focuses on the interplay between finance and the real economy: the international financial drivers of real dynamics and the significant developments of international finance. Financial markets are a channel through which exogenous shocks are transmitted to the real economy but this is not the whole story...
I try to explore the idea of endogenous credit cycle pioneered by Minsky. I am also influenced by Aglietta's idea that the monetary system is a key driver of the credit cycle. That said, I use mainstream methodology in my research agenda.
I have been visiting Princeton University in 2014-2016. It was incredibly exciting. Before that, my first academic position was Lecturer at the Hong Kong UST (2006-2008); I have then proceeded as an associate Professor at Rouen Business School and a scientific advisor at OFCE (2008- 2013). When I went back from the States, I took the position of Deputy Director of CEPII (2016-2020).
I have been a CEPR Research Affiliate since 2012 and I am currently chair of the Financial Markets Commission of the CNIS, an independent body bringing together producers and users of the French public Statistics. I have been a member of Conseil d'Analyse Economique (Council of Economic Analysis), an independent advisory body reporting to the French Prime Minister from 2017 to 2019.
I am from Paris and yet I love outdoor activities (among which kiteboarding when I don't break my leg). I have two amazing kids, both smart and funny.
